Deering is one of the most widely recognized names in banjos, and this Sierra 5-string banjo is proof of the superior tone, quality, and playability that this brand has to offer. With a mahogany resonator and neck paired with the signature Sierra pot design, this Sierra provides a wonderful sonic character. Finished off with premium appointments, you can be sure that this banjo will always perform and looks good doing it. If you're a professional bluegrass or country banjo player who needs a premium-quality 5-string banjo with amazing sound and an exceptional playing feel, you'll love this Sierra 5-string!

Mahogany Resonator and Neck
Rather than employing brighter-sounding woods such as maple or walnut, this Sierra features a mahogany resonator and slender mahogany neck. This naturally warm and balanced tonewood will provide you with a sweeter, more midrange-focused sound while still giving you that signature banjo twang.

Signature Sierra Pot Design
Also catering to the Sierra's tonal excellence, the pot design consists of an 11" frosted top medium crown head, a Deering bronze tone ring, a three-ply violin-grade maple rim, a Deering brass notched tension hoop, and more. All of these elements come together to create a that resonant, sparkling sound that any banjo player will surely appreciate.

Premium Appointments
This Sierra comes with all the appointments you'd expect from a professional-grade Deering, which includes nickel/silver frets on an ebony fingerboard, Deering Planetary tuners with a geared 5th string tuner, a Deering True Tone tailpiece, and a slender-shaped armrest. Original Deering-designed engraved inlays round out this beauteous Sierra banjo.
